Bringing home a new baby is a milestone in the life of any and every family. But these tiny packages come with a lot of responsibility, and also can raise many questions about the best possible infant care.

Learn some baby basics by signing up for Baby 101, a one-day workshop taking place from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 8 in Conference Room A/B at CHI Mercy Health, 2700 N.W. Stewart Parkway, Roseburg. Baby 101 will be led by Lisa Austin, a family support specialist with United Community Action’s healthy families program. Registration is requested.

Austin said the workshop will cover topics such as infant vision, why babies cry and what to do to help them when that happens. Participants will receive information to take home as well as a baby book. 

The workshop is designed to help keep life with the new baby running smoothly. It’s available to all parents and caregivers who interact with infants. A nurse will be available to answer medical questions during the workshop.

Call 541-440-7705 to register. 

Baby 101 is presented by Take Root, in partnership with CHI Mercy and Family Connections.
